It’s that time of year again! Time to wind up vacations and settle back into a daily routine of getting the kids up early and dressed, making school lunches, and getting them to and from school on time.
It’s a day dreaded by parents and kids alike. The massive amount of paperwork for the parents on day one is exhausting. And the list of required school supplies from each class is overwhelming. Every teacher wants something, and they are usually very specific.
One thing that might make the transition easier is helping out the parents by providing a backpack filled with items that the kids can use during the school year, items that are often forgotten when shopping for school supplies.
Providing these items with your company logo is a great way to promote your business while helping parents, and the kids, get organized for the new school year. Below is a list of items that will help everyone out, including you by getting your name in front of parents, teachers, and school administration.
Drawstring Sports Packs
These great backpacks are a wonderful way to promote your brand, and you don’t even have to break the bank doing it!
These bags are perfect for use as everyday backpacks, or to carry gym clothing or other sports-related items. Lightweight and comfortable to wear, drawstring sports packs are a favorite of students. It allows them to take the basics from class to class, and school to home and back again, without having to bring everything in their locker home.
One thing every child needs is a lunch bag! In these times, most parents don’t want their children eating from the school “buffet”, or using their trays and other supplies to try and keep them from catching Covid and other viruses.
All of our lunch bags are insulated to keep food fresh longer. Our best-selling Budget Cooler Bag ($2.40 and up) is a great selectio, and is plenty large enough to hold a sandwich, juice box, snack, and more.
Our Crosshatch Lunch Bag ($2.06 and up) is another wonderful option. If you want something a bit larger for teachers or administration (yes, they bring their lunch too!), check out our Non-Woven Thrifty Lunch Cooler Bag ($2.81 and up)
Another inexpensive way to get your brand recognized are custom sports bottles. They make a great addition to the sports bags, and help keep kids hydrated throughout the day. Not everyone is a fan of drinking from water fountains, and it would give parents peace of mind knowing their child is using a bottle and not sharing a public fountain, especially considering today’s world of Covid.
Our top two selling sports bottles are the 20 Oz. Surf Bottle (Push Pull Lid) (73¢ and up) and 20 Oz. Hydration Water Bottle (78¢ and up. The Metro Collapsible Water Bottle (96¢ and up) is also a great choice, and is easy to store in once empty.
Now more than ever it’s important to keep our kids healthy, and one of the best ways we can protect them when they are not with us is by arming them with an antibacterial hand sanitizer.
Our .5 Oz. Hand Sanitizer Gel (56¢ and up) is our top seller, and for good reason! The portable size makes it easy to store in a backpack, desk, or even a pocket. The citrus scent is sure to please all, and the full color label will make your logo will stand out!
Double your exposure with a 1 Oz. Square Hand Sanitizer Gel (64¢ and up), or opt for our 1 Oz. Tutti Fruity Hand Sanitizer Gel (75¢ and up) with a Blue/Berry, Clear/Citrus or Green/Green Apple color/scented hand sanitizer that the kids will love!
Promotional Pens and Mechanical Pencils
Let’s not forget one of the basics of any education – writing! While Mechanical Pencils are best for younger school age kids, Stick and Click Pens are geared toward the older kids. Both are an essential and will be appreciated by the recipients and teachers alike.
